Aughnanure Castle

Aughnanure Castle stands stately on the outskirts of Oughterard and only a short stroll along a winding country lane from the Waterfront House and the Oughterard Golf Course. The word 'Aughnanure' itself comes from the Irish "Achadh na n-Iubhar" which translates to "The Field of Yews", as the area is surrounded in woodland containing, amongst others, an abundance of Yew trees.

16th. Century Aughnanure Castle, on the outskirts of Oughterard Village, in the heart of Connemara

Standing on what is virtually a rocky Island, the Castle is a particularly well-preserved example of an Irish tower house. The Castle was built in the 16th. century as a stronghold of the O'Flaherty clan, and is renowned for its double bawn.

Time:09:30 - 18:30

Guided Tours:Max. 20

Access to Castle grounds is restricted for wheelchair users.
